Soaring Vocal Harmonies On SACD!
Cubadisco Award for Cancionistica Category!
With the album Lo Que Dice Mi Cantar, which was nominated in the category of
Cancionística and produced by Jim Laurel, from the Muxia Music label, the
Palabras Trio, won a Cubadisco award, the biggest event in Cuban discography.
Emerging in the 19th century, trova is the first expression of popular lyrical
art in Cuban song and one of the principal roots of the great Cuban musical
tradition. For over a century, trovadores (troubadours) have set poetry to music
with extraordinary sensitivity and imagination that continues to amaze with
soulful elegance and poetic flight.
LO QUE DICE MI CANTAR (What My Singing Says) is a walk through places and time
with some of Trova’s founding legends. From Lorenzo Hierrezuelo’s energetic "Vendedor
de Agua" and Pepe Sanchez’s "Tristezas" (the very first
Cuban bolero) to the somber "Esta Vez Toco Perder" (popularized by
the legendary Maria Teresa Vera), these passionate performances honor the
venerable Cuban Trova tradition and speak directly to our modern heart.
The soaring vocal harmonies of Trio Palabras vocalists Vania Martinez and Liane
Pérez, with the nuanced yet bold guitar accompaniment of Nubia González along
with a wealth of some of Cuba’s finest instrumentalists, combine to sweep us
away, and if only for a few moments, provide a brief respite for the soul in
this hectic world.
"MUXÍA MUSIC is dedicated to producing culturally significant acoustic music
in high definition. We strive to capture music faithfully, with the highest
possible fidelity, on location where it lives and breathes. We believe that
recording an entire band playing together in a single space is the best way to
capture that elusive "vibe" that goes missing from many modern recordings. It is
the key factor that gives the most beloved audiophile recordings of the late
1950s and 1960s that visceral sense of realism and coherent sound.
"All the tracks on this album were recorded in single takes. There was no
editing, no overdubbing and only minimal post-production. The musicians were all
playing at the same time in a studio live room, so the natural balance you hear
is what the artists intended. What you hear on the record is very close to what
we heard in the studio. So prepare yourself for an involving listening
experience, and as you drop the needle on this record, remember the line from
Pedro Ibánez’s famous song, "La Trova": "Listen carefully to What My Singing
Says."— Jim Laurel, Lee Lockwood and Andrew Spindor
Lo Que Dice Mi Cantar was recorded with the finest equipment from Merging
Technologies, AEA, Royer Labs, Neumann, Josephson Engineering, Microtek Gefell
THIS RECORDING was tracked at 24bit/192kHz using two mastering-grade HAPI
interfaces from Merging Technologies fitted with AD8DP microphone
preamplifier/analog-digital converters. We located one HAPI in the live room
close to the musicians in order to keep microphone cables as short as possible,
thus avoiding the signal loss and potential for interference inherent in patch
panels and long studio wiring runs.
